Looking for something to do on the upcoming Thanksgiving Long weekend? - Why not head to Scotch Creek?  Ross is putting on a Special Trial at his great location where he has built  a virtual “Trials Playground”  for all abilities - It all goes on Saturday at 10 am - $20 Entry which goes into a “Pot” - As usual he is planning a a big Cook-up on Saturday night ( Camping is allowed)  - Sunday it’s the same thing and if the weather holds like this, it will be Fantastic - because of the current Pandemic - entries are limited, and social distancing required - why not give Ross a call if you plan on attending - it should be a lot of fun. (250) 371-1380

This is Ross tackling one of the “log Walls” he has built.

Another great Beta pic of Florian Schott  at Revelstoke a few years ago - not sure who took this but it’s really good. ( Pic got a bit Squished in the download).

Still on the Beta theme - Steve Holcombe took the overall win at the Italian Enduro last weekend - finishing ahead of Team Beta buddy Brad Freeman . The Brits seem to be the ones to beat again this year.

This is Gary MacDonald on the very special Triumph Cub at last weekend’s Trial in the Highlands.  ( Sorry don’t know who to credit for the pic) - Unfortunately the frame cracked on the day making for a DNF.

And a shot of Christy Williams riding the Iron Mountain Trial - Steve Day acting as “Minder” ( Not sure who took the pic)


This pic is of Stevie Baker and Brian Rolls with a very special Yam that Brian built up for display at the Edmonton Hall of Fame Induction of Stevie and Bob Work. - Brian worked for Yamaha Motor Canada during the time I was there and we shared some good times. He is quite a gifted bike builder and did some road racing at Westwood   ( Vancouver) - Taff & myself attended Steve & Bob’s Induction into the Hall of Fame in Edmonton.

Check out these prices from back in the day - I remember I paid 125 pounds Stirling for my very first James 197 in 1955.

I think the caption for this shot should be “FULL STEAM AHEAD”
